The Neutron and the Bomb: A Biography of Sir James Chadwick by Andrew Brown

By Andrew Brown

This can be the 1st biography of Sir James Chadwick (1891-1974), top often called the discoverer of the neutron, for which he received the Nobel Prize. Chadwick's important function within the unfolding drama of nuclear physics is mirrored in his courses and voluminous correspondence (many choices of that are integrated right here) with different best figures like Niels Bohr and Lord Rutherford. within the Nineteen Twenties, Chadwick rose to develop into the operations director of the Cavendish Laboratory less than Rutherford, and the invention of the neutron got here from an extreme burst of labor in Thirties, after a decade of unhappiness. Chadwick's existence used to be molded via nice occasions, together with either international wars (which carried him notwithstanding internment camps and slender escapes) and the improvement of the atom bomb. certainly, through the moment international battle, he was once to develop into Britain's ultimate authority on nuclear weaponry and leader British scientist at the ny undertaking. His tale therefore bargains detailed insights into the behind-the-scenes actions of the U.S. and U.K. mystery companies and their quest for wisdom of German advances within the nuclear box. As an eye-witness account of a few of the main dramatic discoveries and advancements of the 20 th century, Chadwick's biography is either gripping and insightful.

The Quantum Theory of Fields: Supersymmetry by Steven Weinberg

By Steven Weinberg

Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg keeps his masterly exposition of quantum box idea. This 3rd quantity of The Quantum concept of Fields provides a self-contained, up to date and accomplished creation to supersymmetry, a hugely lively region of theoretical physics that's more likely to be on the middle of destiny development within the physics of user-friendly debris and gravitation. The textual content introduces and explains a vast diversity of themes, together with supersymmetric algebras, supersymmetric box theories, prolonged supersymmetry, supergraphs, nonperturbative effects, theories of supersymmetry in greater dimensions, and supergravity. a radical evaluate is given of the phenomenological implications of supersymmetry, together with theories of either gauge and gravitationally-mediated supersymmetry breaking. additionally supplied is an creation to mathematical strategies, according to holomorphy and duality, that experience proved so fruitful in contemporary advancements. This e-book includes a lot fabric no longer present in different books on supersymmetry, a few of it released the following for the 1st time. difficulties are incorporated.
